Join instructor Sierra Whittaker as she explores multiple media in this six week course. Instinctively we know art is important for our

children. Art is a fundamental component of what makes us human. Students in this class will experience art as a form of self expression and their creative skills will grow naturally. Together we will learn about keeping a sketchbook, how to “see” like an artist, and best of all play with fiber, watercolor, chalk pastel, acrylic, ink and more. Come experience art, you’ll be glad you did!
